With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there’s no better time than now to ask this question: What would you do for love?
Dior has been asking that question since 2017 as part of its #DiorLoveChain charity initiative. And believe us when we say that there have been some crazy answers. Celebrity responses included sex on a plane, dancing until they die and jumping into a cold river.
This time around, Dior asked French ballet dancer and choreographer of the Paris Opera Ballet, Marie-Agnès Gillot, what she would do for love.
Gillot delivers her response, with the help of ballet dancer Hugo Marchand, through an enthralling dance filled with emotion. Her chosen dance routine was one she had performed many times during important moments in her life.
Watch their riveting performance below:

To do your part, simply film your answer to the question and post it on social media with the hashtag #DiorLoveChain and nominate your loved ones in your post to continue the chain. For each post, Dior will make a donation of US$1 to the WE Charity.
The WE Charity is a division of the WE Movement (formerly known as Free The Children). The Canadian organisation is a global network that supports education, health care and clean-water initiatives in developing countries with the aim to help break the cycle of poverty and child exploitation.
The charity organisation is present in nine countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia. And it currently supports 200,000 children in education programmes, has provided 30,000 women with the tools to become financially independent, as well as access to clean drinking water and medical care to almost a million people.
